Will the Real Jesus please stand up?
If we do not turn to Him and surrender, He cannot help us.
His Word tells us that when we turn to the Lord, the “veil” is removed from our eyes – from our hearts (2 Cor. 3:16)
My initial thought was a raging, flowing river of life.
I heard the sound of many waters.
I felt His Presence flooding me with light, life, and healing.
I saw it and heard it.
- Revelation 1:15
- Revelation 22:1
- Psalm 46:4
- Ezekiel 47
Who is Jesus to you? Who Is JESUS?
He is the Son of God and the Son of Man!
He is glorious!
He is Radiant!
The Holy Spirit whispered the word:
EFFULGENCE – the quality of being bright and sending out rays of light, shine, radiance, brightness
Jesus is always “MORE THAN.”
He’s God in human flesh—Emmanuel—God with us!
His joy is real; it is contagious.
His love is filling and satisfying.
His grace is sufficient.
Times of intensity and challenge and distress push us right into His
GLORY THROUGH THE CROSS.
From that time on, it is not you by yourself,
BUT IT IS YOU PLUS+++ THE LORD. More Than.
All of us may be in an ash heap from time to time, but the Lord wants to bring us into ENLARGEMENT.
TO SEE AS HE SEES. To see His glory and to carry His glory.
WEIGHTY GLORY OR FEATHERWEIGHT?
EMANANT – It means issuing or flowing forth; passing forth into an act, or making itself apparent by an effect as in an improvised, often spontaneous spectacle or performance, especially one involving audience participation.
EMANANT —-This is the perfect word to describe the manifestation of the brightness of glory that flows out from Jesus.
HE IS THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD
The whole earth is filled with His glory.
Isaiah 6:3 …a great antiphonal chorus they sang, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is filled with His glory.
His holiness (1) HOLY in heaven, (2) HOLY in this world, and (3) HOLY in the ages to come. Today we can see the triune God being praised:
Holy [Father] Holy [Son] Holy [Holy Spirit]
So Who is Jesus?
Jesus Christ is “the image of the invisible God” (Col. 1:15).
He is “the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person” (Heb. 1:3).
He is the total Embodiment of God.
He was crucified so that He could emanate light, life, and healing from every wound He suffered.
All of the Living River, all His glory, flows into us and over us. JESUS. JESUS. JESUS.
We partake of His suffering UNTIL… the glory of His resurrection is seen rising upon us.
He is Radiant; He is the pure and shining One
We shine as lights in the world dancing in the River of LIFE
